Reflect during your first year at Harvard
The goal of the Journal Project is to encourage ongoing reflective practice during your first year.
If you are a first-year student who wants to participate, we will give you a journal and you will receive weekly prompts to reflect about your experience at Harvard. While we provide journals to all first-year students, we know there are multiple ways for you to reflect - through writing, art, movement, music, or spoken word among many and encourage you to reflect using whatever form of expression you prefer. We hope to invite moments of reflection in your busy lives through the prompts and other reflective opportunities.
The Journal Project is intended to be one way to encourage you to slow down and consider key questions during your first year. We also invite your Peer Advising Fellows and Proctors to actively participate and choose to use the prompts in their entryways and during individual discussions.
